HPC Summit Week 2017 in Barcelona to gather main HPC stakeholders in Europe


28 Mar 2017 Barcelona - The European HPC Summit Week 2017 edition (EHPCSW17) will include even more HPC workshops than the 2016 edition, covering a range of application areas including renewable energies, oil & gas, biomedicine, Big Data, mathematics, climate modelling, computing applications, as well as HPC future technologies. This year's edition will take place 15-19 May in Barcelona, Spain, and will be hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. It will be a great opportunity to network with all relevant European HPC stakeholders, from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to HPC scientific and industrial users in Europe.

"For EHPCSW17 we took on the important challenge of accommodating numerous HPC-related workshops. Our aim is to make the European HPC Summit Week a reference in the HPC ecosystem, and to create synergies between stakeholders", stated Sergi Girona, EXDCI project coordinator.

The programme starts on Monday with the EXDCI workshop , which will give an overview of EXDCI recent activities including the HPC vision and recommendations to improve the overall HPC ecosystem. PRACEdays17 , the fourth edition of the PRACE Scientific and Industrial Conference, will take place from Tuesday morning until midday Thursday, and, under the motto HPC for Innovation: when Science meets Industry, will have several high-level international keynote talks, parallel sessions and a panel discussion.

On Tuesday afternoon, and in parallel to PRACEdays17, three additional workshops organised by HPC Centers of Excellence will take place:

In the late afternoon, a poster session, with a welcome reception sponsored by PRACE, will close the events of the day. On Wednesday afternoon, EuroLab4HPC will organise its workshop " The Future of High-Performance Computing " in parallel to the workshop " Mathematics for Exascale and Digital Science ".

On Thursday afternoon, the European Technology Platform for HPC (ETP4HPC) will organise a round-table entitled " Exploiting the Potential of European HPC Stakeholders in Extreme-Scale Demonstrators " in parallel to the EUDAT workshop: " Coupling HPC and Data Resources and services together ". The week will finish with scientific workshops organised by FETHPC projects and Centers of Excellence:

The full programme is available online . The registration fee is 60 euro and those interested in attending the full week - or part of it - should fill out the centralised registration form by 5 May.
